MARK Molesley will take the chance to rest some players and have a look at others as the Terras prepare to host Poole Town in the Dorset Senior Cup semi-final tonight (7.45pm).
The match has been postponed twice now, which has led to it being moved to the Bob Lucas Stadium.
Molesley light-heartedly remarked: “We have had this interview two or three times now prepping for this game which still hasn’t happened.
“But it is over at our place so we have got a good chance of being on so hopefully it is a time for people to build their match fitness, and for us to have a look at a few other players and use it for that and maybe some much needed rest for some of our other players.”
The Terras have been boosted by two players entering the Weymouth fold, with Kieron Roberts coming in and Lewis Harvey returning after time elsewhere, and Molesley hopes to be able to take a look at the duo against Poole this evening.
Molesley said: “Brandon (Goodship) is now off on international duty I am delighted to say so he is obviously not about.
“There are players there that have played a lot of football lately, (against Wimborne) it was tough conditions, it is going to take it out of them.
“It is important we look after players. Zubes and Yemi (Odubade) and some of our elder statesmen need to be looked after at this stage of the season so we won’t be risking them.”
Weymouth currently have Callum Buckley, Jordan Ngalo, Josh Wakefield and Josh McQuoid out injured and Molesley has emphasised patience with the squad.
Molesley said: “We have got some really strong players to come back but we just need to be patient as well. We can’t push too soon and risk losing them, we need them back and all fit for the run in, so we do not want to go a game too early and risk losing them for the season. We just need to be careful with how we manage the players and the minutes.”
Goodship’s England C side face Wales this evening in Salford (7.45pm).
